Patients trying to have a baby through IVF don't have to feel overwhelmed by the cost of treatment. There are a number of ways to help finance the cost.
In our last blog post, we discussed risk- and cost-cutting methods such as IVF refund programs powered by Univfy's predictive technology that offer a partial or full refund if your treatment is not successful after one or up to three IVF cycles.
The average cost of one IVF cycle in the U.S. is $12,500, not including the price of freezing and storing of embryos, and having one or more transfers of frozen embryos.

A refund program can significantly decrease the financial risk and ultimate cost of your IVF treatment. See more on this topic in our previous post.
